I've said it before and I'll say it again: BB creams have come a long way. No longer are they thick and unwieldy, they're now more comfortable in humid weather, with a more perfecting finish. Well, the shade selection is still limited but if you fall in the fair to medium range then you shouldn't have any trouble.
Now three of the BB creams featured here are too light on me, but that's because I didn't get the chance to choose the right shade. That notwithstanding the formula of these BB creams are amazing! Here's why I highly recommend them. :)
The Fairydrops Candy Bar BB Cream is hands down my favorite BB cream ever. It stays put, matches my skin perfectly (luckily), and has such a flawless, photogenic finish. It's definitely something I would buy when I run out!
A lot of people don't like that this doesn't have SPF - it's unheard of for a BB cream to have no SPF! - but for me that feature is a boon. At least this product can be worn pretty much any time during the 24-hour day. It's not a big hassle for me to just use my preferred SPF moisturizer/base if I am going out in daylight.
Best for: girls with oily skin, who need a photo-ready face base. Light to medium range only (two shades).
It's that time of the month again! Here are my favorite finds last month. There's quite a few lip products here, I noticed, but there's also a couple of skincare gems that I think I'll stick with.
Here you go!
The Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter is not perfect, but the beautiful color selection, texture, and packaging more than makes up for its shortcomings. It still is a pretty kickin' lip product!
Sleek MakeUP True Color Lipsticks are amazingly pigmented and the colors are just wow! They feel rather dry to me, but nothing lip balm can't fix. Mystic, a deep purple shade, is such a statement color.
I feel a little apologetic writing this because almost all of my best finds last month teeter on the expensive side (those are what I've been receiving from brands lately). They truly are worth it though, if the specific product fits your skin and lifestyle needs that is! This January I hope to try unforgettable mid-priced products to share with you guys, so hold on to your seats for that.
In the meantime,here's a list of my top 10 favorite finds last December!
The Benefit Brow Zings is currently my favorite eyebrow product. They sculpt and define my eyebrows, giving them this dark tint that I normally won't go for but looks great on me anyway.
Safe for work and perfect for fun, the Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Pink is a lipstick shade that wiill never go out of style. It's one of those colors that works for all skintones.
The Shu Uemura High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil is the best makeup remover out there because it's not just a makeup remover - it's also a pretty awesome skincare product.
Here we go again, my list of top finds last month! November has been a good month for me, blogging and work-wise, because I got to try a bunch of great stuff plus finalize new projects. It also ended with good news, so I'm in a really great mood right now. Happy is the word. How was your Movember?
Before you let me know, read through my top picks first! Lol.
The MAC Mineralize Blush in Love Joy looks amazing on me. It's a gem of a shade. This is my favorite blush as of the moment! The formula is a little intimidating to use at first but once you get the hang of it you'll love it too.
Love the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup SPF15! It's my default foundation of late, when I expect to be out for half a day (I use a longwearing foundie when I plan to be out 8-12 hours). It looks amazing on me - like, no joke. Really looks like skin just better!
Looking for eyeshadows on a budget? Fret not, for the IN2IT Eye Colour Palettes are there for you. They're pigmented and the texture is amazing. Must-try.
So, here are some of my best finds last month! :D These are some of the products I love using - they're really good, plus worth single cent you'll have to shell out for them. Many are inexpensive but the pricey ones really take the cake, promise.
The Dream Tint Moisture Tint with SPF15 is the product I'm currently saving up for. It's awesome. It doesn't have much coverage, but it somehow evens out my skin beautifully. I also like how it acts as an excellent primer before foundation. It's P1,900 (OUCH) but I think it's worth the price!
The Clinique Airbrush Concealer lightens and brightens my eyebags in a jiffy. It doesn't crease much and doesn't feel like anything once applied - brilliant.
The In2It Waterproof Blush Set is made of awesomesauce. Gorgeous colors and great lasting power makes these blushes a mainstay in my kit. Try Lovebird and Affinity!
